as they do. >> now we're looking at the good-bye. what does all this good-bye stuff tell you? >> obama looks glad it's over. he looks relieved. he doesn't look victorious. romney looks happy and he looks relieved but you can tell that he feels victorious. >> how do you know that barack obama was relieved it was over? what did his face or body tell you? >> just his posture sort of drooped a little bit. he walked over more quickly not because he wanted to be assertive but because he sort of wanted it to be over with, then he goes over to michelle and again, there's this sort of -- it's very, very subtle but this kind of collapsing body language that looks a little bit defeated. romney is showing the opposite. he's doing more of the sort of -- he actually looks -- he loves everyone right now. >> gary tuchman with harvard business school professor amy cuddy. we appreciate it. >>> someone else who was watching the debate closely, alan schroeder, author of "presidential debates, 50 years of high risk tv" and journalism professor at northwestern university in boston, wrote about his take on last ni
since president obama took fi. we'll tell you why that number matters and why it might not matter that much. plus, the fight over the middle class. mitt romney makes a sudden appeal, but is it going to work? and new questions about the security in libya after terrorist attacks there killed four americans. tonight, the state department rejected a security request. let's go "outfront." "outfront" tonight, the war over work. a new jobless number and renewed claims from both presidential candidates about what it means. first, president obama saying it is a very, very good sign. >> this morning, we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. >> the old rate, 8.1%. the new number, 7.8%. that's the best since barack obama took office and it's certainly positive news for his re-election hopes because no president has been re-elected with an unemployment rate above 8% since roosevelt in the 1830s. erin herself has made this point many times. >> the unemployment rate may be high, but the the absolute number is not what matters when it comes to ge
they're trying to tell about president obama? i get that they don't like him but what is the strategy here? on the republican side, a reason that the money has slowed down a little bit is that people are disappointed with the overall big picture, strategic. >> i'm sure you don't mean to imply that there's more coordination -- >> i'm trying to imply there's a lot more common sense we've been advertising on our side than they have been doing on their side. >> when i just made that comment to bill, obviously, in a lighthearted way because super pacs, by law, are not allowed to coordinate with the campaigns. >>> today, the fbi visited a site in benghazi where a u.s. ambassador was murdered. the day after a newspaper reporter found sensitive documents laying around the site, one talking about a need for increased security days before the attack. that's "out front" next. >>> once mitt romney and paul ryan take the stage we'll go there live. at unitedhealthcare insurance company, we understand that commitment. so does aarp, serving americans 50 and over for generations. so it's no surprise m
your gut tell you? do the september job numbers erase president obama's performance at the debate in your opinion? take a look what the "news nation" said about yesterday's gut check. does wednesday night's debate reset mitt romney's campaign. 11% said yes, 89% said no. i'm sorry for the laughter, but someone made an abrupt move behind me and it scared me. i don't know what's going on. it's friday for the "news nation." thank you for joining us all week long. we're uploads new pictures from behind the scenes. go to our tumblr page and ush watch "news nation" every day at 2:00 weekdays.

[ rodger ] at scottrade, seven dollar trades are just the start. our support teams are nearby, ready to help. it's no wonder so many investors are saying... [ all ] i'm with scottrade. >>> i'm toure. the unemployment rate is below 8%. we haven'
, three weeks later he tells us this is not sincere. this is a kcalculated move. >> now he says it's wrong, as he shifted for example, in some respects back and forth on health care saying he would repeal obama care. a couple of days before the debate, embracing he was the godfather of obama care. the larger issue is, with mitt romney coming out and saying, i was wrong, does that help him reset his campaign? >> no. >> you say -- >> i say no because he's looking more and more like a shape shifter, which is precisely the stereotype that people have somehow in their minds held about him, including people on the right. you don't know who the real mitt romney is. by doing this it's like he's inflicting 1,000 cuts on himself. this constant movement and bobs and weaving doesn't help him recover when it comes to likability and trustability. >> anne let met get you in. in virginia governor romney was with congressman ryan there. they had the fireworks, and it actually reminlded me of when the republicans would criticize the democrats for having those pillars remember at the last democratic national
of this. i think valerie jarrett sat next to mrs. obama during the debate tells the president every day, you're the greatest orator in the history of language. i think if you hear that long enough you don't think you have to prepare for the debate and have contempt for anyone who would even dare challenge you for your job. bill: larry sabato, the university of virginia, right, he said last night that it is clear he blew off all of hess practice sessions. >> right. bill: and he said there is evidence to prove that. but it doesn't just stop with folks like al gore. ed schultz was on "the today show.". savannah guthrie asked him specifically what was going on. here he what he said. so many lies coming across the stage and so many inaccuracies, it was hard for the president to comprehend it and decide which one he wanted to attack first. i really believe that because the president's personality is bookish, likes to explain things. will not put something in two or three or four like thing and say well, i'm done with it guthrie says, it sound like you're making excuses. he went on to say romn
presume we're going to see more of the campaigning obama than we saw in that debate, and at the same time he has got to tell a story here that sticks to numbers that are real. i think that if one party and one candidate can really stick to the real tale of where we are economically and how we move forward in this economy that is inhibited by what's happened in the great recession, that honesty might carry the campaign, but i don't think that pie in the sky is going to do it like we saw especially out of romney the other night. >> i agree with that, and i think it would actually play to the president's core message about investment. the reason that we are where we are economically is a competitiveness issue. jobs have gone abroad. this is not a three-year process a ten-year process, it's a 30-year process. the labor share of the pie has been shrinking since the 1970s. so i think that that's good for the president because it plays to his message. we've got to invest in education in infrastructure. countries like china spent four times as much on infrastructure as a percentage of their econo
number is so important to jobs, to various campaigns, isn't it smart to have obama donors in as economists in the department of labor statistics? >> and let me tell you, there's no law against giving money. these are not major-- you're making it out like somehow george soros is running the department. ridiculous, eric. >> and you attacked me on something about the-- >> the confidence has been going up for months, this is not something that's based on-- >> i think two statistics that do matter in here to people. whether or not they would pay attention to them. one is the participation rate. >> yes. >> you have that few people, the lowest it's been since 1962. >> let's look at why that is. because more people close to retirement age are deciding that they-- >> that's been debunked several times. >> they're unemployed and-- >> no, no, no, they're taking early retirement and deciding you know what? >> and the line that bob beckel tried to use and it actually does not pan out and the second one is that take home pay is not keeping up with inflation. and inflation is higher so t
think he can. i tell you, after that debate and after barack obama's performance, which was staggeringly bad. >> all right. >> no, i mean it. >> okay. >> i'm hearing this from democrats. and this broke through, you know, we always hear about how americans aren't paying attention. they're looking at reality. so this broke through. everybody was talking. but not just how well romney did but how badly the president performed. >> well, just as i think it was premature to declare the race over before, i think it's too soon to say that performance is widely watched as it was and as strong as it was is actually going to move numbers. we've yet to see any numbers move. i think they probably will some and i think that on the other hand did governor romney win the day yesterday in the news cycle given how strong he was thursday night? he didn't decisively win it. he did one event late in the day. he did one event late in the day. look at the evening newscast, the morning papers. >> he doesn't have to win every day. >> i think he has to win most days. he lost about two months of days. i think he's
and abortion. correspondent steve brown tells us where that race stands right now. >> this race is not over. i -- i'm not assuming anything. >> senator clare mccaskill is nothing if not careful. she's maintained a safe distance from fellow democrat president obama who's not popular in her home state. and the missouri senator hovers just a bit more than two points above republican congressman todd akin in the real clear politics average of show-me state senate polling. on undecideds are eyebrow raising 10%. >> this is probably two-thirds pro republican undecided so there's enough there, i think, for akin to make up the difference, if he gets the help he needs. >> help has been in short supply in the last three weeks since his gaffe about quote, legitimate rape. and shunned by national republican leaders including mitt romney. >> basically we lift the barn and they put the barn on top of us. in suburban st. charles county. it's not akin folks are mad at. >> we've probably had nor people looking for akin signs after the way he was treated by the party establishment folks in washington d.c. >> i a
trillion. >> what is happening in new orleans? where is your dollar? [applause] it tells me that people in new orleans, they don't care about as much. megyn: that was then presidential candidate barack obama in 2007, suggesting that racism is a relief effort involved for the folks in hurricane katrina. this particular part of his offscreen comments, they got little to no coverage before they were posted on a daily caller.com. the president's deputy campaign manager is calling on the romney campaign to denounce the video, saying that the romney camp needs to stand up and say it was wrong for the daily caller to post the president's comments earlier in the week. take a listen. >> i think that allies to mitt romney are responsible and they should stand up and do the right thing and say that it was irresponsible to do something like that, particularly on the eve of the debate. it was so transparent what they were trying to do. mitt romney has been taking heat for weeks for his comments behind closed doors with his wealthy donors. he didn't care about this country. their answer is to put out
of the game it doesn't matter. i'll tell you why. all those folks can vote for romney and he still needs those conservative democrats -- >> i have a theory that the people hate obama so much on the right, cynthia, and perhaps center right, they hate him so much they want to have this guy go to the center as long as he wins. your thoughts? >> that's absolutely true, chris, because people like karl rove and billy crystal know that mitt romney is an empty suit, and they can push him around if he wins the presidency. you know that old saying if you stand for nothing you won't stand for anything? well, romney doesn't stand for anything. he doesn't really have any values or principles that he really believes in except he really wants to be president. that's why we saw that new slick version of the romney bot on on wednesday night. this romney bot, they worked on him for hours in the factory making sure he had the right smile, making sure he seemed warm and sincere. well, who was that guy, michael? this is not a guy we had seen on the campaign trail for the last -- >> i can't even take any of this se
obama cannot rewind and unleash that last night at the podium? but the way he and his opponent's campaign have adjusted their tactics in moving on from last night's debate tells you more about where the campaign is going from here than any dial test you saw during last night's debate. that's next with jonathan alter.

was confined to a wheelchair. >> brian: the other thing that was significant yesterday, he wanted tell everybody how the middle classs is his focus and upper class had it too long. and when he gets another four years everybody will pay the price. >> you know the phrase you always use, obama and biden, want to raise taxes by eight trillion dollars. guess what, we do in one regard . we want to let that trillion dollar tax cut expire so the middle class doesn't have to bear the buren of all of that money going to the super wealthy. >> steve: in politician school. within a month of an election done tell them you are raising taxes . >> brian: if you buried the middle class which he did. >> gretchen: entering he used the word buried. you got to wonder if paul rhine will use buried or one trillion tax coming up a week from yesterday. >> steve: mr. biden has been busy this electionn cycle. it was a month or half ago in the common wealth of virginia in front of the count. mitt romney will put you all back in chains . that was a big story 15 seconds . >> brian: then forced to takely weeks off an
: obama and romney -- what are the most important issues to them? my next guest recently pulled entrepreneurs with nine employees or less. thank you so much for being with us. what did the survey tell you about the candidates when it comes to the small business owners. who do they prefer? >> thank you for having me, ashley. fifty-one-38% in favor of romney with our small businesses. nine employees or less makes up about 95% of the overall businesses in the u.s. 51% of them are talking about voting romney, 38% obama. ashley: i hear this a lot from small business owners, their biggest issue access to capital. affordable capital in order to grow their business. is that what you found in the survey? >> with republicans, we found that 90% of the small businesses that are going to vote republican, excuse me, 90% of them are talking about cutting red tape that their number one issue. on the democratic side, it is more affordable and better health care options smaller businesses. ashley: from your perspective, what was the biggest surprise, do you think, in the survey? >> well, you know
point to the data to say, look, they're making that difference. >> so that tells me even though we for so many people, the psychological number, eight, not that we're under the 8% mark in unemployment, do the obama folks think we're not over the hump, economically speaking? >> they concede that and that people are still hurting and what matters to people at home is not some number that the labor department puts out, but their own economic circumstance and whether they have a job, whether they know somebody unemployed and this is very abstract. so people are still hurting. but in terms of the political gamesmanship, 8% is an important marker because when the president passed the stimulus, one of his economists projected, it wasn't a promise, but a projection that 8% would be -- we would not be above 8% with the stimulus and because we were for so long, republicans were able to say the stimulus didn't work, now they can say, look, there is evidence that political football can maybe go away for now. >> jessica yellin, thank you. that's one interpretation of today's number. let's get t
billion more than your plan, obama. and by the way, we're going to spend $2 trillion more on defense. so far romney's saying we're going to spend more than democrats. >> and no revenue. >> let me tell you how we know he's secure with his debate. debate night he talked about romney care, the plan he passed in massachusetts and the next day he went to sea pack and got a hero's welcome. guys, the base is okay. >> the counties in this country with the highest percent of medicare recipient are republican counties. of the 47% he talks about, romney will get half of them. >> 47% don't know they're in that 47%. >> they don't identify themselves as victims. >> right. >> congressman, the problem is the margin republicans ran with seniors in '08, that margin is shrinking right now. that's really problematic for states like florida. >> bottom line is politics is perception. people when they hear a politician say something in private like that, you can't really walk it back. you can't walk it back a month later. there's another number though that came out today, we're talking 47%. and that is 7.8%. c
